Fentanyl remains the deadliest drug in the united states.
But in some areas of the country, meth is killing more people.
Those new statistics were released in a report from the centers for disease control and prevention.
Nearly 39 percent of all drug overdose deaths were from fentanyl in 20-17.
That’s a 10 percent increase from 20-16.
Heroin was the second leader of fatal drug overdoses.
Research shows meth had a greater impact in the western half of the country.
While more people overdosed and died on fentanyl in the east.
